|JNN07-Mystahr-Mtiful - Mystahr|
We all are nothing; and so we shall return. And from that emptiness grew Mtiful; meanderings through the field of experimental improv electronics. This album journeys into the physics of sound and its electronic behaviour, frantically trying to control that which lies beyond our touch. Like the chaos and unpredictability of nature, so this album shares of the deeper layers of life. Dare to dig the soil upon which we tread; dare to dive in the realm of a mad scientist mind called mystahr.

|JNN106 Conclusion - SzentpÃ©tery Csaba|
It was somewhere in 2009 that through NTNS radio I first heard of this Hungarian artist. I had played an album from him that was released on Amduscias Records and I loved that to bits. The silence after that settled in untill early August SzentpÃ©tery contacted me and asked me if I was interested in releasing his latest album. Without hearing even a single tone I welcomed him onboard and new that I would be proud of this fine fine release...

|JNN017 - Controlled Dissonance - This is what I do when you're drunk - Controlled Dissonance|
The latest release from Controlled Dissonance, This Is What I Do When You're Drunk, is an exercise in noise as catharsis. An emotional cleansing presented in four excursions into sound manipulation, ranging from bleak and stark ambient soundscapes to devastatingly harsh walls of noise.

|JNN084 Senja Ini di Tangga Keramik - AKU|
Of all the remarkable releases from all over the globe this certainly stole my heart with its most weird and live recorded tracks that meander somewhere between the sound of The Orb, Merzbow and Zappa. A remarkable trio indeed to make its appearance in an album notice. AKU is a group of artists that got together in the Smooth Studio in Bandang, Indonesia in Januari 2010. One not often hears music from this island group, but there is most definately a lively experimental scene happening there...

|JNN089 It is more then all world - AAGSF|
For the longest time I’ve admired the works of AAGSF very much. AAGSF or in the longer version: Aliens A Galactic Sound Flanks hails from Moscow Russia and has to date released many a beautiful album on the Russian RusZud netlabel. I am not sure if he has released outside of RusZud a lot, but let this moment be one for you to get acqainted with the subtle and deep works of this sound meister. The matter cannot appear and cannot disappear...

|JNN073 Two sides of life - Alexander Kibanov & HZ|
And just under the wire this sublime album was passed to Just not Normal. Since it was ready to go there was no doubt. This needed to be heard and shared. From the gentle near music-box experimentalism of Alexander to the soft noise experimentalism of HZ. Two sides of life, combined into one single release.

Vladislav Buben, well known under the name Buben, is a sound artist and an imminent pioneer of the underground scene in Bielorussia. The connexion between Buben and Anton Mobin was established by Rinus van Alebeek, a few months ago, when Rinus asks Anton a technical help to digitalize sounds from a tape which be used by Buben to compose the great album released on Clinical Archives : Moral Tranformations (ca377) > http://www.archive.org/details/ca377_bra After this technical support, Buben natur...

|JNN113 Sea of Trees - Krabatof|
How these mystical artists find their way into the realms of JNN is beyond me sometimes, but behold; this âSea of treesâ will astound you. But before we talk of this album here, letâs share a previous review of âInsectâs Brainâ shared on Touching Extremes; âa little more than 31 minutes of very interesting âbruit artâ by Geneva-based Ludovic Guerry, who manipulates ânoises, field recordings and many weird soundsâ in seven personal definitions of a peculiar world of embryonic utterance...

All this on a very well chosen theme to leave you with shivers after this intense listening experience.

If the world of lo-fi IDM could find more oompf, this would be the place. A wealth of toys has been intergrated into these 10 tracks that will make your mind swirl and your body ache for more. Ofcourse it may just as well be possible that youâre not into such degraded toynoises. If that is the case, you certainly got lost and trapped in a world you neednât be in.

Of Places and Moments is a celebration of the art of field recordings. The tracks to be included utilized recordings from the Sounds Found Project, a repository of user-contributed field recordings.

And temporarily available as a flac file as well (only untill december 9th)

|JNN014 MindSpiral - The redundancy of suicide - Mindspiral|
MindSpiral is a series of collaborations between Mike Metlay and anyone who doesn’t hang up when he calls. This incarnation, mind6Spiral, resulted when Tim Walters (see e.g. JNN03) traded a night’s lodging (10 August 2008) for one hour of feeding audio from his laptop into Mike’s mixer, while Mike added his own sounds and a live audience on StillStream.com listened. It was a fair trade. Mindspiral Tim Walters
